Professor Rob Ford’s presentation on the EU referendum

  • 23 February 2016

This morning, HEPI and the HEA jointly hosted a seminar at the House of Commons on the forthcoming referendum on the United Kingdom’s place in the European Union and what it means for higher education, with platform speeches from Professor Anton Muscatelli (Vice Chancellor of the University of Glasgow), Professor Timothy Garton Ash (Professor of European Studies at the University of Oxford and Fellow of St Antony’s College and the Hoover Institute at Stanford) and Professor Rob Ford (from the University of Manchester, co-author of the Political Book of the Year 2015, Revolt on the Right, and one of the editors of Sex, Lies and the Ballot Box).

An audio recording of the opening remarks from the three speakers will be available in due course to anyone who contacts us. Additionally, Professor Ford has kindly granted us permission to post his presentation online – this provides fascinating up-to-the-minute information on the state of the polls, the demographics of supporters of the two sides and lessons from earlier referendum campaigns.
